Shockwave wave therapy sounds scary, but it is not. The name implies that you will be shocked in some way – in reality, only small pulses of sound energy are applied to the injured area.
The purpose of the therapy is to trigger the body’s own natural healing response.
Many people report that their pain is reduced, and mobility improved after the first treatment.
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves creating a series of low energy acoustic wave pulsations that are directly applied to an injury through a person’s skin via a gel medium. The concept and technology originally evolved from the discovery that focused sound waves were capable of breaking down kidney and gallstones. Generated shockwaves have proven successful in a number of scientific studies for the treatment of chronic conditions.
Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.
